If Only For A Little While

Your children only hold your hand For a little while Before they push you away But there’ll come a day When they’ll likely say “Hold my hand, don’t go away” Hold my hand a little longer “Please stay!” “please stay!” …”Please stay”…

    I loved this poem, simplicity yet so deep the meaning you have captured in your verse. I have added this to my favourites. Well done.
